The pastrami sandwiches are so large that my husband and I split one. Then we get either French fries or onion rings to share (or sometimes get both), and we are full! Fries and onion rings are delicious too. As is the patty melt, which we also share!

I' ve been to Johnnie's with my family for lunch. The location is not so "cozy" ( even if I like it as it is typical ) but we had a very good lunch: Hamburgers, Kid's meal and Fish&chips were all tasty. The waitress was very kind. Well Done!!!

Been eating here for years and it is always good. Love my fries well done and my pastrami with extra mustard. Oh and the drinks have crushed ice!

Their pastrami sandwiches are sublime. The pastrami is really tasty, and they don't stint when they're piling it on the sandwich. They also have AMAZING pie.

If you never have eaten here, this is your chance to have a great experience. Make sure you eat there. You get the bottomless pickles if you do. I don't normally eat pickles, but for some reason I really like theirs. Been going there for more than 35 years.

Johnnie's Pastrami is average for the price and quality provided in the Pastrami sandwich. I have been going to Johnnie's Pastrami for over 30 years.
